Nail Art

Dedicated to the infinite joys of nail art and design: handpaint, airbrush, colored acrylics and gels.

 

Going for a Spin

   Use a paper hole puncher to punch out a hole in the tip. Apply a coat of clear gel and mylar. Around the hole only, apply a layer of pink gel, then a layer of white gel.
   Using a striper brush, drag across the pink and white to create a starburst. Cure. Apply two more coats of clear gel. Cure. Wipe, then buff.
   Using an electric file, make a slit at the top and bottom of the punched-put hole. Cut wire and place a pretty bead of the client’s choice onto it. Place the wire, and apply gel on either side to hold the wire in place. Cure, then wipe (make sure the bead spins). Add rhinestones around the hole. Apply top coat.
